Summary
After a failed suicide attempt brought on by two botched relationships, Dale Stewart takes a sabbatical, drawn by a recurring nightmare back to his boyhood home in Illinois where he hopes to stay the winter and write a book about his childhood and the murder of his friend, odd but brilliant Duane McBride. Camping out at Duane's long unoccupied house, even sleeping in Duane's bedroom, he begins to get cryptic messages on his computer, visits from packs of black dogs, and threats from local neo-Nazis.
Critique
Claustrophobic and suspenseful, this horror novel is well-written with a truly surprising ending.
